lyrics

There were two camps
One blue, one red
We sailed these lakes
In hopes of finding land
Our leader said “She needs the blood
Of a woman to bring her love”
I was afraid
No one would speak
I took the staff
And said my peace

Look to the skies
God save your queen
You can take me as your sacrifice
I will give my life
God save your queen
You can take me

I was no threat
There was no reason
But my exile fell into my hands
They gave me flowers
They burned the trees
Then laid me down in the ground
Why am woman?
Why not a man?
If I am willing
Take of my body

Fill me with peace
Give me freedom please
I am not afraid to die
Don’t feed our goddess upon the blood of our priestess
Bring her release
